History[edit]

In January 2010, Utah-based Phone Directories Company (PDC) entered into an agreement with Canpages and rebranded itself as Ziplocal.[2] In March 2010, Olivier Vincent (then CEO of Canpages) orchestrated the sale of Canpages (including Ziplocal's assets) to Yellow Pages Group (YPG).[3] YPG then traded its US division (YPG Directories, LLC.) to Ziplocal, LP [4] in exchange for an "equity-to-equity swap".[5] YPG now owns 35% of Ziplocal.[6] Olivier Vincent then left his position as CEO of Canpages and became CEO and President of the Board of Directors of Ziplocal.

Olivier Vincent is no longer the CEO of Ziplocal and so his team members which includes Dariush the CTO. Mike Anderson who was working with Canpages earlier became the CEO of Ziplocal in 2011 until 2012.

Ziplocal's website states that its corporate office is in Provo, Utah [7]
